Patriots | DeAndre Carter impresses

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:37:11 -0700

New England Patriots WR DeAndre Carter showed quickness and good hands out of the slot during organized team activities Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely that Carter will make much of a fantasy impact this year even if he does continue to impress. Someone like Danny Amendola possibly going down could increase his opportunities, but Carter should be left on waivers for now.

Patriots | Key Patriots absent Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:17:29 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot), RB LeGarrette Blount (knee), RB Dion Lewis (knee), WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are infamous for their vague injury reports and resting of players. Obviously they're going to take caution with the players listed above, though. As long as none of these guys suffer any setbacks this offseason, they should be good to go for the start of the regular season. Edelman and Gronk should both be viewed as fantasy starters at their respective positions, with more value in PPR formats. Lewis is an RB2 candidate in PPR formats if he can stay healthy, while Blount has RB3 potential if he, too, can keep his health. Amendola is the biggest injury risk; he shouldn't be viewed as more than a low-end WR4 to high-end WR5.

Patriots | Dion Lewis optimistic for Week 1

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:30:41 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has given signs of optimism for being ready for the start of the season. Some close to Lewis feel that he's about a month away from being able to play in a game. The team plans to be conservative with him, and his repetitions in organized team activities will be limited at best.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis emerged as a PPR gem before going down with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. However, he only rushed 10 times in a game once last season. So don't overvalue him. He's a solid RB3 if he doesn't have any setbacks.

Patriots | Tom Brady to file appeal

Mon, 23 May 2016 05:16:12 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady's legal team will officially file its appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Monday, May 23, which is the deadline to do so. "The facts here are so drastic and so apparent that the court should rehear it," attorney Ted Olson said.

Fantasy Tip: Brady had his four-game suspension reinstated in the offseason, but he was able to wiggle free the first time. If you're drafting early, he's still worth taking as an upper-middle quarterback. You'll just have to burn a higher pick than normal on a backup in the low-end QB1 range.

Patriots | Arian Foster doesn't visit Patriots

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:56:55 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) did not visit the New England Patriots during his recent trip to Boston.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots already have a pretty crowded backfield, so they may not be looking to add even more depth right now, even if it is Foster. If New England's backfield stays as is, Dion Lewis is an RB2 candidate in PPR leagues and LeGarrette Blount is an RB3 option in standard formats.

Patriots | Arian Foster an option for Patriots?

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:23:08 -0700

Free-agent RB Arian Foster (Texans) has received preliminary interest from the New England Patriots, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Foster is still recovering from his Achilles' tendon injury, so he is not ready to sign with a team at this point. Foster likely would be part of a committee if he signed with the Patriots, which would hurt is value. Foster probably would be a middle- to late-round option in fantasy leagues but would not be a weekly starting option. Foster could be a No. 3 running back or flex option if he joins a favorable situation.

Patriots | Danny Amendola recovering

Mon, 16 May 2016 13:54:28 -0700

New England Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee, ankle) is recovering from a pair of offseason surgeries that could prevent him from being ready for the start of the 2016 season. Amendola had surgery on a troublesome left knee and another surgery to remove a bone spur in his ankle, according to a source. Both surgeries happened early this offseason. It's still too early to know when Amendola will be fully recovered, but his knee will demand a longer recovery schedule than his ankle.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola has had a propensity for injuries during his career. He's only played two full seasons in his seven-year career, and hasn't scored more than three touchdowns in any season either. Don't think of him as more than a low-end WR4, with extra value in PPR formats.
